Creating our own fossils...
Following on from their archaeological dig, the children extended their learning of how fossils are formed and how they are extracted from the ground. The children then went on the create their own replica fossils using plasticine and toy dinosaurs. Their final creations looked very realistic, well done!
Digging for fossils!
This week the children have become archaeologists and they have been digging for fossils and interesting artefacts. The children learnt how fossils are formed overtime and they learnt what sorts of dinosaur fossils have been found around the world. The children also found lots of fun facts about fossils- like that without fossils we would have never had discovered that dinosaurs were alive. Great digging year 1!
A Long Long Time Ago...
This week the children started to learn about when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. They plotted events on a human timeline on the playground to help them establish the context of how long ago different things happened in time. The children were amazed when they found out that the first dinosaurs lived around 3.45 billion year ago!
This week in History the children started to learn about when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. They plotted events on a human timeline on the school field. The children were amazed by how long ago and how far they had to stand when they found out that the first dinosaurs lived around 3.45 billion year ago! Super!
